Dall’intervista di Repubblica al capo di gabinetto del ministero dell’Interno Giuseppe Procaccini:
Dunque, il 29 maggio, il ministro dell’Interno sapeva che la diplomazia kazaka aveva chiesto l’arresto di un latitante. Corretto?
«Si. Di un pericoloso latitante».
Possibile che nessuno al Viminale, né lei, né al dipartimento, sapessero che Ablyazov era un dissidente kazako?
«Io non avevo questa informazione. L’ambasciatore kazako mi parlò soltanto di un pericoloso latitante. E mi risulta che anche nelle banche dati Interpol sul soggetto in questione non vi fossero informazioni diverse dai reati per i quali era ricercato».
Dalla voce su Mukhtar Ablyazov di Wikipedia, nella versione che era online il 29 maggio:
Mukhtar Ablyazov (born 16 May 1963, Galkino Village, South-Kazakhstan) is a Kazakh businessman, former banker and politician. He is currently the subject of a legal investigation in the UK High Court after he allegedly embezzled billions of dollars out of BTA Bank between 2005 and 2009; and now facing a jail threat for failing to comply with a High Court order to reveal his true assets.
The DCK included a combination of existing politicians and major businessmen and called for decentralisation of political power, a strong legislature and an independent judiciary to balance the power concentrated in the executive branch.
In July 2002, Ablyazov was convicted of ‘abusing official powers as a minister’ and sentenced to six years in prison. These charges were considered by many to be politically motivated, including the European Parliament  and Amnesty International. The trial failed to meet international fair trial standards.
It is alleged that he was subject to torture, beatings and other ill-treatment whilst he was in prison. After pressure from the international community, including Amnesty International and the European Parliament  he was released in May 2003 after only serving ten months, on the condition that he renounce politics.
